VIBE A small new club in the heart of the entertainment district. Currently, DJs spin urban on Thursdays and Saturdays (which are also the busiest nights), house on Fridays and drum 'n' bass on Sundays.
PEDIGREE This basement venue has had several incarnations in recent years, including as Red Square and the short-lived NYC Dance Boutique. It's been heavily renovated, though, and looks completely different from its days as Red Square.
GIMMICKS Borrowing a concept from clubs in Miami, Dream Lounge has moved some beds into the club that you can reserve and where you can get a bottle. Unfortunately for them, this is a feature at many other chi-chi T.O. lounges, so it's no longer that special.
GETTING IN THE DOOR It calls itself a members' club, but all that means is that you register your e-mail address the first time you come. Higher levels of membership, gained by signing up your friends, give you benefits like free cover and line bypass.
